Caprese Sandwich

Nothing says summer like ripe heirloom tomatoes in a Caprese salad. Even better: Put the same ingredients on a roll so the bread catches all the juices.

Sunset JULY 2012

  • Yield: Serves 4
  • Total: 30 Minutes


  • 4 ciabatta rolls (4 oz. each), split and toasted
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound water-packed mozzarella, sliced
